By Giulio Ongaro

Early-modern Venice is predominantly remembered as a maritime energy, but historians became more and more attracted to its political and armed forces aspirations in the Italian mainland. including to the growing to be literature in this topic, Giulio Ongaro’s e-book addresses the sensible administration of the Venetian army equipment during this interval. targeting provinces - Vicenza and Brescia - he interrogates a large spectrum of fundamental resource files produced by way of those rural groups that remove darkness from Venetian army actions among the mid-sixteenth century and the top of the battle of Candia in 1670. From the creation of the saltpeter, the development of the fortresses, the delivering and the learning of the agricultural armed forces and the quartering of troops, this publication exhibits how crucial army actions have been controlled and overseen on the neighborhood level.

In so doing, it demonstrates how neighborhood autonomy over the administration of Venetian army gear - really from an fiscal perspective - didn't unavoidably clash with wider, ongoing procedures of country construction or strikes in the direction of the centralization of specific public features. certainly the nation looked as if it would motivate neighborhood élites (initially city, then rural) to take a number one function in overseeing the localised administration of army projects. the end result was once a procedure that either supported the resilience of the neighborhood financial system (both public and private), and which reinforced and enhanced the Republic's army resources, permitting it to stay the single Italian nation loose from the domination of eu monarchies.
